Style Redefined: Veteran Stars Grace GMA Gala 2023 with Iconic Elegance

See the veteran stars who stood out from the crowd for their classic looks

The GMA Gala is back for its second year, and it was once again a night of fashion and glamour. The biggest celebrities in the country came out to show their support for the event, and they all brought their A-game.

The theme for this year’s gala was “elegant formal,” and the stars definitely delivered. From stunning gowns to sleek suits, everyone looked their best. But there were a few stars who stood out from the crowd for their classic looks.

While all the guests looked incredibly impressive last July 22 at the Manila Marriott Hotel for the GMA Gala 2023, these veteran stars just shined the brightest with their iconic elegance.

If you’re looking for some fashion inspiration, be sure to check out the looks of these veteran stars:
